Regeneration Community Services, whose employees are represented by CUPE Local 4891, is proposing a three-year wage and benefit freeze that workers simply cannot afford. Provincial government underfunding may result in a service disruption at Regeneration Community Services on April 23, 2021 if workers are forced to strike.

Dedicated funding to community mental health and addictions supports produces substantial economic benefits and improves the capacity of our health care system. Providing accessible, safe, and community-based resources helps to mitigate reliance on more costly health care services and the criminal justice system and enhances quality of life for thousands of Ontarians.

Sign and share this letter to the Board of Regeneration Community Services, urging them to respect frontline community mental health and addictions workers and avert a strike.

To the Board of Regeneration Community Services,

We need your urgent attention to avert a strike at Regeneration Community Services.

Regeneration Community Services, whose employees are represented by CUPE Local 4891, is proposing a three-year wage and benefit freeze that workers simply cannot afford.

The employer claims that they cannot afford to respect workers because of their pay equity obligations—workers should not be punished for pay equity. If Regeneration Community Services does not budge at the bargaining table, a service disruption at Regeneration Community Services will begin on Friday, April 23, 2021 at 12:01am.

Over the past months, frontline community mental health and addictions workers have been supporting those who’ve been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic. Workers at Regeneration Community Services are overworked, rapidly burning out, and are witnessing clients suffer because they cannot access the supports they need and deserve.

We ask that you immediately contact the Minister of Health to ask the Minister for the funding needed to to avert a strike and support frontline workers at CUPE Local 4891.

Sincerely,
